Thanks, in fact i dont know to much about xorg  and your help here 
always is welcome :)

after run it the both commands with the same user i am now able to see 
in a little white box the terminal with xterm, but now the big question 
is how can i display the windows, wallpapers and everything else like 
xorg does by default ?
